Excursion to Central Scientific Library

On April 1, students of the Faculty of Oriental Studies of the Arabic section organized an excursion to Central Scientific Library of RSE "Gylym Ordasy", under the guidance of Amanzhol Saltanat Taizhankyzy. During the tour students received a lot of information about the creation of the library, the opening of their department, the main directions of the library.

G.M. Abikova, head of the department of rare books, manuscripts and national literature, introduced scarce books, manuscripts written in Chagatai, Ottoman, Arabic and Persian, as well as some manuscripts of Kazakh poets and writers, written in Arabic letters. She also noted the shortage of Arabic-speaking specialists in digitizing scarce books, documents, manuscripts and other data in Arabic. This increased the interest of students in their profession.
